I came to Oasis as a busy mum of 5 children. I made lots of friends and grew in confidence.
NOW I'm about to start work!
When I first joined the English class I couldn't speak English but I soon started to learn and I grew in confidence. Now I can talk to my friends in English and I can make a doctors appointment and talk to my sons teachers at school without feeing shy (and I have made some new friends)
During these strange times we all need a
place to just chill out and relax, to talk about
our worries and fears with others.
We need to be listened to without being judged.
We aim to be such a place on line and on site. Our helpers are always ready to listen and to help when needed....and to have fun too!
We are very happy to take referrals from other agencies.

The Creative English classes are run at Oasis thanks to training given by Faithaction. These classes aim to make learning English fun. Learners are from a variety communities who have very basic to little spoken English. Some have been in the country for many years but have never had the opportunity to learn English.
Classes begin to give a grounding in English and help to build confidence in the learners through learning through drama, dialogues and other fun activities. These classes are best suited to those new to the UK or to those who have tried in the past to learn English but have found traditional methods of learning not suited to their learning style. This course gives a good introduction to learning and builds confidence.
These classes are currently running face to face or on ZOOM and include sessions on different aspects of life in lockdown
** Making an appointment with the doctor,
** Attending a doctors or hospital appointment,
** Calling emergency services (999)
** Talking to your childs school
and other language needed for daily like.
We offer 2 free sessions to new learners and £10 per half term after that
****To attend a session at the Centre we require everyone to take a rapid CoVid test before attending***
At Oasis we aim to provide a place of learning, help and friendship.

Primary Homework Club
Children like to do well in their homework and sometimes it's hard for parents to give them the help and encouragement they need. We hope to offer face to face sessions starting September but numbers will be very limited. CALL for details
Children from year R to year 6 can find some of the help and resources they need. The club is run by trained teachers with their helpers but they are NOT tutors. They will not do the homework but will encourage and facilitate the children to do their best using the internet together and checking work.
Because we want the children to do their best, there are a limited number of places available so please call in or phone before bringing your children.
